A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

This camp is one of my favorites

I go to many basketball camps over the summer.  This camp is one of my favorites.  Blake and his coaches make this camp a lot of fun.  You get to compete in a lot of games and individual competitions.  As a shooter, I also really respect Blake Ahern and know I can learn a lot from him.  This camp is excellent from a learning experience and a lot of fun!

Blake really knows all the kids by name

Blake, Ricky, and all the counselors! My boys loved all the competitions, the games, and Blake really knows all the kids by name! He was especially nice to my daughter who was unable to attend this year because she is suffering stroke like symptoms.
